CDiis CBook is Dedicated EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL pRinciPflL’s messflGe Although events tend to follow general patterns, the happenings them¬ selves are varied. The final results of the intercourse between staff and stu¬ dents at this Normal School during the year 1941-42 will in the main be similar to those of the years preceding, but by force of circumstances pro¬ cedures during the present year are different from those of other years and the resultant of the education acquired during the present may be of a distinctive character. The change from the carefully planned, adequately equipped, and well cared for Normal School building to the Garneau Public School building called for the exercise of considerable resource on the part of the Staff and co-operation on the part of the students. With the completion of the addition to the present building the educational program has developed at least as smoothly and in some respects to a greater degree of singleness of purpose than in former years. The sending out for eleven weeks of students in relays to “man” the rural schools that were unable to secure teachers presented the problem of making these experiences educationally significant to the students after their return. Although it is not possible to fill the gaps so incurred in the Normal School course, modified procedures to meet professional deficiencies discovered in themselves by the students, and the greater degree of directness and profession¬ al purpose acquired from their experiences will go far to make these groups effective and stimulating teachers. The number of requests from ratepayers and School Boards for these students to return after graduation indicates that their efforts were earnestly educative and not merely a time-serving routine. The loss of three stimulating and effective instructors in the course of a month was little less than a shock to both Staff and students. Appreciation of cheir services in the past and pleasant memories of our associations make our good wishes fervent to Captain G. M. Dunlop, Flying Officer J. C. Jonason, and Captain A. L. Doucette. We are fortunate in their successors, Mr. A. W. Reeves and Mr. H. A. MacGregor. More than in any other year the present Normal School class—you—has been called upon to exercise those excellent qualities of heart and mind which give to life the fullest meaning, to our profession intelligent planning and skill, and to our association mutual affection and happy memories. You have re¬ sponded whole-heartedly. The members of the Staff all join with me in ex¬ pressing our appreciation. We like you as individuals and friends and we re¬ spect you as a class—whole-heartedly. Some one has remarked that God must love the common man because He made so many of him. This school has endeavored to make active in your minds the idea that man is not common at all. Lower than God in that he cannot create, he is almost infinitely inventive and progressively unravels the mysteries of creation. Your business is to teach people not merely to read and to write but to understand. Exploitive purposes have played too great a part in educational policies. Nations and classes will war against each other until exploitation gives way to interdependence as an educational policy. We have confidence that you will seek to bring about such an atmosphere of under¬ standing and good will. The motto of your school—non inferiora secuti— means “following no mean task”. We wish you well. G. S. LORD. AURORA, 1941-42 G S. LORD, M.A , LL.D., Principal EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOi STAFF 1 Edmonton M f " NORMAL =$ x -Jr. 1 SCHOOL jKfelllllL. a M.B. SMITH 1 AURORA, 1941-42 STAFF Edmonton NORMAL SCHOOL 10 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOI. The liberal-minded Edmund Burke, speaking a century and a half ago, said, “There is but one law for all, namely, that law which governs all law, the law of our Creator, the law .of humanity, justice, equity—the law of nature and of nations.” So should we of the present generation speak, if we would “keep the faith”. Respect for the law connotes self-discipline, the achievement of which is a cardinal function of education. To this end we today order the work of the classroom. We place upon those in our charge the onus of decision on ques¬ tions of personal conduct and responsibility proper to their stages of maturity. It is fitting, then, that those who lead should be prepared to teach, by ex¬ ample, the true meaning of self-discipline. It may be required of some that they leave the comfort and security of civilian life for sterner duties. In this spirit three members of the staff undertook new responsibilities during the Fall term, joining His Majesty’s forces for the duration. We had just come to know and respect the soldierly Mr. Dunlop, the thoroughness of whose instruction had already made its mark; the dynamic Mr. Doucette, who could turn his “hands” with equal facility and ability to work in any field; and the kindly Mr. Jonason, whose sound knowledge of modern educational practice had won our admiration. All too soon these guides, counsellors, and friends were called from our midst. We have missed these gentlemen, and our hope is that future Normal classes may enjoy over a longer period the benefits of their wide experience. To these absent ones we say, “God speed, and a safe return”. “THE NORMAL SCHOOL CLASS OF 1941-42”.

Class 41-42 wish to express to Miss Margaret Smith their appreciation for her unfailing courtesy and helpfulness to them throughout the year. Miss Smith is leaving us on May 15, and shortly afterwards she will assume new and greater re¬ sponsibilities. Our best wish for both her and her future partner is that she may never lose that combination of efficiency, cheerful disposition, and sense of humor that has enabled her to help solve difficulties for dozens of puzzled Normalites each day during the past year. Miss Smith—Happiness and prosperity to you through the years. AdminiAtnatiOH, 14 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL TO MY FELLOW STUDENTS OF THE EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL—1941-42: Having arrived at the end of our training, we draw our breaths and looking along the path we see that we have little more than started. But from the first to the last moment spent in Normal we have had experiences which we shall treasure as we go further along the way. Normal School has beautiful memories for most of us. Studies, parties, games—and boys and girls—are all pleasant to recall. I like to remember the good times we had playing badminton on Saturday afternoons and the grand times we had playing volleyball and bas¬ ketball. Perhaps most of you can recollect the bruised nose, the stiff neck, the lame back you got when you tried to build a graceful pyramid or do an artistic bit of tumbling? And, may I ask, “What Normalite will forget those ‘practise - teaching woes’?” In this connection who will forget how helpful Miss Clever could be in her library (and how icily she could smile when she passed you in the halls when you had an overdue book somewhere). This year 1941-42 has memories of carefree schooldays, the like of which we shall never see again. The Staff will remember this year also, but perhaps not so pleasantly because of having to move from the spacious Normal School to the crowded Garneau. However, many of the instructors have signified considerable enjoy¬ ment in the past year with us; so they too may have experienced something pleasant to remember. At this time I wish to thank Dr. Lord and all the members of staff for the advice and valuable assist¬ ance they gave us during the year. And so teachers-to-be and friends, it is with mingled feelings of happiness and regret I must say goodbye—feelings of happiness be¬ cause of the friends I have known and their dearness to me, and feelings of regret because of the many whom I may not see again. Your friendship has meant a great deal to me. Good luck to you! Sincerely, DAVID CLARK. AURORA, 1941-42 1941-42 MARJORIE CRUICKSHAKKj PROGRAM PlRgCT OR g 16 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL P€RSP£CTIv e Another term is coming to an end. Time marches on, the tide of our fortunes ebbs and flows, and throughout the years we be¬ come more and more progressive. We first enrolled as students. Before long circumstances made it necessary for many of us to sit on the opposite side of the desk. To the north we went to display our newly-learned arts of pedagogy. In that cold northerly climate, our molten ardour solidified before the blasts of experience. On returning we found ourselves faced with a greater task—striving for higher objectives. Normal School was now more than a place in which to learn and forget. It was a place where work was to be done. With the sympathy and understanding of our instructors, we once more dug in. This time, zeal and understanding were with us. A new horizon had opened up. So by today we have learned the necessity of enduring toil. Great tasks lie before us in every field of endeavor. Whether we teach school, defend our country on the battlefield, or till the soil, the future hopes of our civilization rest with us. Let us do our best to fulfil these hopes. This year at the Edmonton Normal School will remain long in our memories as one of the milestones of our lives. Years from now, looking back through periods of success and failure, satisfaction and disappointment, and all the ups and downs of our variegated careers, we will all think of the days at Normal with pleasure. We will be indeed fortunate if the years between are so overflowing with suc¬ cess and happiness. In the meantime let us remain— “.strong in will, To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.” R. DAVIS, Second Term President. 17 i ft 1 1 AURORA, 1941-42 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL to you For the first and only time it is my privilege to address the entire student body—the students who are now teaching in the field, those who have been teaching, and those who have yet to face a class of their own. At a recent culmination it was my privilege to observe, a little girl made a report on “Our Day of Troubles”. Our instructors and students might well write a volume on “Our Year of Adverse Conditions in the Normal School”. We think of the hardships occasioned by the transfer of our school from the previous plant. Yet there is not one instructor or student who would be¬ grudge the Air Force the use of our building, in spite of the Physical Education periods we had to spend in the snow. We think of the constant shifting of students from class to class, and in and out of school. This was necessary in order that children in the outlying districts of the province might not be denied the right to an education. It meant, however, that we could not come to know each other as we should have liked to do. Yet there is not one of us who is not proud that we were able to contribute to the war effort in this way. Again, there is an old proverb which warns us against changing horses in the middle of a stream. We did not change horses, but we changed instructors so frequently we became dizzy. When we review the difficulties under which our school has operated, our strongest reaction is a hearty desire to kick Hitler. There is a considerable measure of satisfaction in the thought that, in a sense, that is just what we have been doing. The highest compliment that has been paid to us is the expressed opinion of some of the staff that, under difficult circumstances, we “have been the most co-operative class in the history of the school”. The quality of students in our Normal Schools is steadily improving. It is our duty as fledgelings in the teaching profession to foster this improvement. Talents are found everywhere in children, and we must endeavor to develop these talents so that in future years Normal School instructors may keep on repeating to every new class they meet that they are better than the last. It is the desire for improvement, not over others, but over his own accomplish¬ ments, that inspires man to those greater efforts through which he reaches new heights and sets new standards. It is towards these new standards that we must strive, and in our work their foundations will be laid. Good luck to all—I know you will succeed. BARBARA SHERWIN, Editor. ACKNOWLEDGMENT The Year Book Staff wishes to express its appreciation of the help given us by Mr. Hedley. He gave us the benefit of his many years’ experience, freely, whenever asked, and his timely suggestions made our task much lighter than it might otherwise have been. 20 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL to th€ noRmnuTes of 1941-42 Your request for an article for your Normal School Year Book has placed a responsibility upon me officially which I gladly assume. I am persuaded that all the Normalites are fully aware of the great strug¬ gle that is going on in the world and what it is all about. I hope you understand what we are fighting for as well as what we are fighting against. During the days to come, more than ever before, your services are going to be very much needed to keep the home-fires burning, while others will be required to meet the enemy in the front ranks wherever that may be. In this war, we are all in the front line trenches. We are fighting against tyrannical dictatorial forces. Our struggle is for democratic liberty, and more than that, for economic security as well. Our citizens can never be satisfied to return to conditions as they were before this war began. We must not be satisfied to see poverty and undernourishment continuing in a land of plenty. Something must be done to remedy a system that burdens our citizens as the present one does, with oppressive taxation, overwhelming debt, as well as debt charges, and disastrous unemployment. As instructors of our young people, you must give these matters some real consideration so that you may inspire hope and confidence into the hearts of the rising generation. We must kindle a real vision in the imaginations of those who will soon be called upon to assume the responsibilities of public affairs. “When a people lack vision, the Nation must perish”. Wishing you every success in the task that will soon be yours, and praying for you, divine inspiration and courage that you may go forward bravel y to do your duty, I am, Yours sincerely, WILLIAM ABERHART, Minister of Education. 1941 - 4 . DEPARTMENT EDUCATION AERERTA PROVIMOIAE GOVERNMENT EDMONTON 7 NORMAL SCHOOL AURORA, 1941-42 21 PRACTICE T€flCHinG On October 23, 1941, there left for points widely separated a group of highly excited and expectant young students. Why? Because as “mission¬ aries of education” some of them were going to the country of the mighty Peace, some to Athabasca, others East, still others South. ’Tis true that on that fateful Thursday, just before the “All aboard” for bus or train, many looked back longingly to the pleasant days and friendships that a month of Normal had provided. But after the iron wheels had begun to roll, and the tires of buses had begun kicking gravel at cars behind them, who looked back? After debussing or detraining came the ride to school on top of a lumber wagon. Every limb of the budding pedagogue had to be dedicated to the task of holding vital pieces of baggage on board. What matter if his coat was torn on the bedspring which was his fellow passenger? Who will ever forget how, on that first morning, he bravely led his group in the singing of “O Canada”, his voice ringing out strong and true, clear and unfaltering—until it cracked on the top note? Who will forget that morning on which he awoke with a premonition of things to come, and got to school to find the inspector waiting on the doorstep? Days came and days went, swiftly—some misted over with the problem of what to do with Jimmy, others rose colored with the knowledge that on this day at least he had taught somebody something. There were rabbit hunting days too, and days when some walked twenty miles in search of deer, while others stayed at home and let “dear” come to them. Is it not for this reason that our numbers were decreased by one? Ask two of the boys about the time they rode miles to see a third teacher, and, on enquiring of a small boy how much further they had to go, received the answer “Poppa and Momma”. They’ll tell you. Ask two of the other boys how they like canned pork and beans. They’ll tell you. Ask one of the girls about the three well-groomed horses that stood at the hitching post every Friday. She won’t tell you a thing. Well, they forded rivers and filled out reports, put on concerts and shot rabbits, ate bread and venison one week and venison and bread the next, learned new languages and met new people. Then they came back, some dis¬ illusioned, some more enthusiastic than before, but all with the feeling that “I wouldn’t have missed it for the world”. If you want to know what conditions are like on the frontiers of education, ask the trainees. “They Have Been There”. A. RONAGHAN, Class A. L.M.MOYER AURORA, 1941-42 YOUR CHOICE “Journeying by land and journeying by sea, coming and going so strangely to meet and to act and react on one another, move all we restless travellers through the pilgrimage of life.”—Dickens. I have watched for a number of years this action and reaction; this adjustment to new situations; this experience of first adventures in the Practise School, and I have learned to appreciate the fact that you students face an ordeal which is demanding as well as develop¬ ing. In times such as we now face, when positions are more plentiful but where remunerations for services in the teaching profession are still low, one asks why such a choice has been made. If you would strive to become financially secure in your mellowing years, or you are in search of an easy job, then you may be unaware of what is before you. It becomes apparent that behind the choice lies the high quality of service. Nothing may become so cold and cheerless as the first glimpse of your new school. You will find within its walls the positive and the negative, the alert and the dull, but when experience has taught you to meet situations and understand personalities, you will experi¬ ence a satisfaction of achievement that is rare indeed in other pro¬ fessions that you might have chosen. That you may often capture this thrill and that it may lead you to the highest and best in the teaching profession, is the sincere wish of the Staff of the Practise School. M. W. MacDONALD, Principal, Queen Alexandra Practice School STAFF GARNEAU PRACTICE SCHOOL s III 1 M t i fIK I AURORA, 1941-42 27 TO B€ TRULY GR€flT Today the constituency of an efficient teacher reaches out beyond the con¬ fines of his classroom. Much is expected of him as a contributor to social bet¬ terment and to that extent his responsibility as a member of the community is great. Active participation by pupils in organizations and institutions helpful to the common good should be the goal of every teacher. The great purpose of living is to pass on the best from the past and present to the next generation. With this purpose constantly before him a teacher will do real service. Yet this high service must receive tangible recompense. A teacher re¬ ceives satisfaction from a gleam of intelligence on the face of a learning pupil. Someone has called this the teacher’s psychical salary. However, this is not enough. The teacher is worthy of recompense commensurate with high service. In attitude can we learn something from the response of the Grade Eight boy when admonished by his mother not long ago? The mother said, “You don’t get right down to business. You must learn to think.” The boy replied, “But, mother, I can think. The trouble is I don’t know much.” A hopeful future! ALBERT E. MIGHT. AN APPRECIATION The Practise School teachers have been affected as much as any one by the many changes of this year. Despite this they have continued in unfailing help¬ fulness and patience with us. There is a story of an old Chinaman who sent his son to clean the garden walk, and, although it had been swept and washed until it was spotless, the old man was still dissatisfied with it. Each of the boy’s further attempts to make the walk cleaner met with the old man’s scorn. Then, to show his son what was lacking he shook the trees growing beside the path until their fallen leaves, tinted by autumn, formed beautiful patterns across the bare walks. Some of us may attain to the son’s standard of punctilious discharge of duty, but, as the father added beauty to service so the Practise teachers have added the kindly and gracious gift of interest in us as individuals. To them this year’s Normal class says a heartfelt “thank you”. 28 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOI. During the past school year two Normal students and one Practise school teacher left to join the ranks of the R.C.A.F. Mr. Botsford, of the Practise School was the first to go, followed by Charlie Mitchell and George Dubetz of the Normal. P. O. Botsford taught at Eastwood and Ritchie schools in the city before coming to Garneau. At Garneau Mr. Botsford’s humor, fairness and sportsmanship won him many friends on the staff, and made him extremely popular with the students. Charlie Mitchell took his first breath of air in Lloydminster. He attended school there until the end of Grade XI, when circumstances forced a temporary halt to his education. Ten years later he finished his Grade XII at Kitscoty and came on to Normal School. He went out as a trainee in the fall, and taught until Christmas. Shortly after the holidays he joined the R.C.A.F. as a student pilot. His quiet manner and smile have been missed by those who came to know and appreciate his worth during the time he was with us at Normal. George Dubetz, he of the friendly grin, was born nineteen years ago at Smoky Lake, and attended school there until he came to Normal last fall. In his senior year of school he won a cup for athletics, and he continued his interest in sports at Normal School. His favorite pastimes were touch rugby and table tennis, while his favorite subject was mathematics. We salute these three, and those others of our group who may soon be in the armed forces. We know that they will be worthy of the cause for which every free man and woman is fighting today. 30 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL e.n.s. i94i-42 We were transported to a new world that September morning in 1941. The Normal School steps seemed to be leading us to the realization of our hopes and the fulfilment of our most cherished dreams. Later those same steps became tests of mental and physical endurance to the victims of run-down alarm clocks. Yes, truly a new world—a world of lectures, clubs, and practise school! Practise School? Who fails to remember that first day? Watching the teacher, observing the pupils, searching tirelessly for material which was never used. Then there was that peculiar sinking sensation in the pit of the stomach just before a lesson was due. One rather startling thing was the realization of how strong the imagin¬ ation of a youngster in Grade three can be. One young teacher was helping four pupils with a little dramatic part which involved the carrying of an imaginary ladder and an imaginary pail, when one bright youngster said, “Jcdm should be carrying the ladder and Mary the pail, because the ladder is heavier than the pail.” The teacher agreed, whereupon the exchange was made. John bent his back and with difficulty lifted his imaginary burden, while Mary, smiling happily, swung her pail. But not always did things go so smoothly. One group remembers how a member tried to control a group of fifty Division III girls in their “P.T.” class using a tonette for a whistle. The tonette hit high D, and the noise subsided for a brief instant, only to re-surge so mightily that Miss Maclver had to untangle the situation. Who does not remember the agony of trying to keep awake in a crowded practise school room as the sunny afternoon wore away to the accompaniment of the drone of children’s voices? Who has not had the bewildering experience of waking up with a start as a practise school youngster tripped over one’s legs. Humiliating, indeed! Nevertheless it is a great task which we have set ourselves to do. Mr. Churchill has said, “ In the past we have had a light that flickered. In the present we have a light that flames. In the future there will be a light that shines over land and sea.” When this calm and steady light of peace and prosperity for all comes to shine over the world we will know that it must have come, in part, because teachers everywhere have been doing their duty. Let us make it our firm re¬ solve that we will do all in our power to see that the prophecy of Mr. Churchill is fulfilled.

We heave a long and awful sigh, Surprised at what we learned. G. WALGENBACH, Class A. PROBL€fT)S Of R “Oh see that notice on the board A dance on Friday next.” This is what I overheard, And it’s to be my text. The girls looked rather worried, Their smooth brows were perplexed. “Now who can I get to come with me,” They cried, “On Friday Next?” Here’s calling all the Air Force, The Army and Navy too, A warning we issue for your defence, But we trust you’ll know what to do. How fast the night was approaching, The boys at school were pleased, For they were outnumbered three to one, And you bet their minds were eased. " noRmflL " miss At last it was almost eight o’clock, The swain was at the door. Said Miss E.N.S. student of ’42, “Here’s hoping he’s not a bore”. Then they are past the receiving line, And she shyly looked at him, As the orchestra plays “The Blue Danube” They glide smoothly ’round the gym. She is a surprised young lady, And he a pleased young man. The opening dance is over, And each thinks “Gosh he (she) can”. The “Normal” dances are all like this. Shy damsels, Prince Charmings too, And everyone has a splendid time, Our Fridays we never rue. But oh! it’s hard on the “Normal” miss, And indeed she gets perplexed When she hasn’t a man at her fingertips, For the dance “On Friday Next”. IVA WOODWARD, Class A.

At times the sounds may not be very sooth¬ ing to the listener’s ear, but to those who are making them there is a great deal of satisfaction, especially when the noise turns into music. Although many of the practises have been held with only every practise has been both enjoyable and profitable. present, Since there are a number of beginners in the orchestra, our aim has been two-fold—to learn to play an instrument, and to learn to play with others. Having achieved these, students are better prepared to carry on music in their own schools in the future. To reach these aims is a difficult task, for it re¬ quires much practise both individually and co-operatively. For many the task was made more difficult by unsympathetic landladies, or by roommates who were allergic to the squeaking of violins or the blast of trumpets. The new embryo Toscannini’s are grateful to Mrs. Higgin for her untiring and gracious efforts on their behalf. They also thank the more experienced members of the club, who bore with them and helped them. This is one club that will be ‘heard 58 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL TH€ GL E€ CLUB The Glee Club was organized in October under the leadership of Mrs. Higgin. At the first meeting the offices of President, Vice-President and Sec¬ retary were filled. Those elected were Kay Falconer, President; Vivian Millin, Vice-President and Gladys McLennan as Secretary. The members learned several songs and presented them at our Lits on different occasions. Among the songs we learned are: The Pirate’s Song, Annie Was the Miller’s Daughter, This Is the House That Jack Built, Bless This House, Soldier Soldier, and Into Parliament. We also learned several light opera selections from Gilbert and Sullivan’s “H.M.S. Pinafore”. The leading singers in this presentation were Diana Hughes as Cousin Hebe, Aaron Card as Sir Joseph, Russell Beairsto as the Captain, Jean Thoroughman as Buttercup, and Bill Bober as the Bos’n. Margaret Wilson, dressed in a sailor suit, danced the Sailor’s Hornpipe. Everyone enjoyed the results of Mrs. Higgin’s capable direction. We know that all the members have profited a great deal from this and we are sure that it will be of great help to them next year. AURORA, 1941-42 59 The Dramatic Club did not get under way until midway through January owing to the general disorganization of classes in the Normal School. However, the few meetings we were able to nave were very successful and enjoyable. At the first meeting the members divided themselves into the following working groups —directors, make-up, children’s plays, stage-craft, and acting. Each of these groups was re¬ sponsible for one meeting’s entertainment. Thanks to Miss Krantz, Miss Thompson, and the Misses Hagen tea was served at several of our meetings. In March a play, “Spreading the News”, was presented at one of our Lit. meetings. The play was put on by members of Class D and was directed b,y Mr. Repp. One person to whom we wish to express our sincere appreciation is Dr. Dickie, our staff representative, who so kindly directed, guided, and advised us in our efforts to make the Dramatic Club meetings both enjoyable and educational. Thank you also, Dr. Dickie, for your invaluable lesson in co-operation and friendliness. In my turn, I wish to express my appreciation of my Dramatic group who have carried on the year’s work under very trying conditions and have shown, I feel, more than ordinary willingness to co-operate, ability in organization and dramatic talent. DONALDA DICKIE. EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL AURORA, 1941-42 61 DfiAR DIARY: October 3— We started off on the right note by having an outdoor picnic—indoors. The staff had planned a hike, but even their plans may be changed b,y the weather. 2:30 p.m. found three hundred and thirty labelled students romping from room to room, slacks and gym shoes removing all dignity and shyness. The committee planned a variety of entertainment in each of several classrooms cleared for the purpose. We played games in one room, danced in an¬ other, ran relays in a third and finished up with hot dogs and coffee—a la picnique, of course. October 17— The newly installed social committee made its debut tonight, still Gymless, but de¬ termined to make the best of it. Dr. Lord and Mrs. Lord received students and their guests, and dancing commenced at 9:00 p.m. Generous students, musicians all, gave freely of their talent, so Miss Budget said we might indulge in coffee and doughnuts after three hours of whirling and twirling, ping-pong and bingo. October 31— We were entertained royally tonight—had the balcony reserved for us at the Garneau theatre saw Arizona” and a “thriller” then went back to the Normal School for coffee and cookies. November 28— The girls gained the upper hand at a Reverse Party and made sure that not a wall¬ flower existed. Games and dancing continued until 11:30. December— The Christmas semi-formal was a thrill for everyone. It was our first social function to be held in the n.ew gym, and certainly something to be remembered. Dr. Lord, Mrs. Lord and Dr. Dickie received more than four hundred students and their wide-eyed “Oh’s” and “Ah’s” expressed appreciation of Dr. Tuck’s decorations—multi-colored streamers draped from the ceiling to the balcony rails, branches of evergreens interwoven with electric light bulbs, and several beautifully trimmed trees artistically placed. Floor managers Jack Thorburn and Aaron Card conducted a program of dancing which began with the grand march, was interrupted for coffee, sandwiches and fruit cake at 10:30 p.m. followed by a short concert, and continued until after twelve when students and guests reluctantly said good-night. JANUARY 9— Students just back from their three months teaching added gaiety to the first party of the New Year. We “just danced” while the non-dancers played games, but it was fun hearing of the trainees’ experiences. January 23— We “went native” with a “hill-billy” party for Normalites only. Students gambolled around in rags and patches dancing and playing games until lunch time at 11:00. Prizes ap¬ propriate for the occasion—rolling pins and cans of pork and beans—were given for the best costumes. February 13— The second term social committee took office in time to plan a very successful Valen¬ tine’s party. Class D won the honors with their paper designed as a heart-shaped mortar board. March 13— The semi-formal St. -Patrick’s dance was another feather in the new social committee’s cap. To students planning to teach for the three months following Easter, this was a gradu¬ ation dance. April 17- Members of Classes A, G, and D frolicked at a children’s party in the upper hall. The girls were cute with their print dresses and hair ribbons. As the Year Book goes to print two more social events can be clearly seen on the horizon. On April 24 the last of our usual dances will be held in the gymnasium. Our closing graduation dance will be held on May 21, with the traditional graduation ceremony the fol¬ lowing afternoon. It has been a difficult year, but a good one, and at the close we shall be more happy than sorry—sorry that we must leave, but happy to have made many lasting " friendships during our stay at E.N.S. 62 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL “Say, when do we get a program?” “When we get into the auditorium.” “When, will we get into the auditorium?” “When the auditorium is finished.” “When will the auditorium be finished?” “Well ....???? ?????” Such was the conversation around Normal School from September to December. On November 28th we did stage a program—in the upper hall. After a farewell presentation to Captain, Dunlop the group enjoyed community singing and a varied selection of musical num¬ bers, readings and dancing. At long last, early in December, we opened the auditorium with a “Lit.” which was highlighted by a play “Hollywood Bound”. The remarkable (??) radio talent possessed by nu¬ merous students was brought to light. Singing, readings, and a dance number completed an enjoyable program. The Christmas Party of December 17 furnished an attractive setting for a short pro¬ gram following the lunch hour. The Christmas spirit gave zest to the singing of the good old carols. We enjoyed the singing of a quartet composed of Miss Millin, Miss Roy, Mr. Repp and Mr. Card, and a rectitation by Miss Brooks and a reading by Dr. Dickie. At our first program in the New Year a group of sound films brought to us a variety of instrumental and vocal productions, as well as some fine orchestral work. The final program of the first term was held on January 23, two days before “Burns’ Day”. This was an evening program, which had a distinct Scotch flavor. A two act play, written and directed by Thelma Sutherland, was well received. Readings, songs, and dances followed. Miss Wilson’s dancing of the “Highland Fling” was enthusiastically encored, and the audience enjoyed singing some of the old favorite Scotch airs. So ended our first term programs. AURORA, 1941-42 63 • In comparison with other years, the “Lits” this year have been few and far between. For this we may blame inadequate space and insufficient time for practise and performance. These factors prevented us from attaining our objective of “every student on the stage at least once during the year”. Considerable re-organization of our committee was necessitated during the term when some of the original members left to take up schools. However, in February the “Lit.” blossomed forth in a picturesque St. Valentine’s oper¬ etta and pageant, under the supervision of Dr. Tuck and the direction of Thelma Sutherland. The leading soloists were Vivian Millin and Henry Repp, Martha McCormick and Mike Pawliuk. A feature of the operetta which was greatly appreciated by the audience was the fine dance number under the direction of Peggy Freeman. Our March programme honored the sons of Erin in the play “Spreading the News” which was sponsored by the Dramatic Club. The leading roles were capably taken by Mildred Larsen and Jim Soneff, with Henry Repp directing and Dr. Dickie supervising. A pleasing musical production, “Ireland Sings”, directed by Peggy Freeman, and a delightful rendition of selections from “H.M.S. Pinafore” by Mrs. Higgin’s Glee Club rounded out the program. To all who helped we say “Thank you”. EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL FIRST AID Over two hundred students attended First Aid Classes under Miss Hastie’s skilful supervision. With so many enrolled, three classes had to be formed, one of which met Wednesday nights, one on Friday afternoons, and one on Saturday mornings. Although our time this year had been shortened consider¬ ably nearly all the students attended faithfully, and were credited with the required number of hours to qualify them for taking their final examination. The classes took the form of interesting lectures by Miss Hastie during the first hour, followed by practise in first aid principles on various “patients” during the second hour. The course was terminated by an oral examination conducted by a doctor secured for the purpose. In addition to the fun, we had the gratification of successful work, for all of us qualified for the first certificate. “FIRST AID” “First Aid to the injured” Is Nurse Hastie’s cry. Some two hundred students To do or to die. Splints to the right of them, splints to the left of them. Bandages and reef-knots—they tied the best of them. Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays too, All members attended, we give them their due. They acted as patients and helped us to see, What a real first aid case is likely to be. Peter Bodnar pretended his leg had been broke, And Bill Hansen splinted him—it wasn’t a joke. With tears in their eyes the students stood by, And watched Bill splint Peter as there he did lie. And then there was Aaron, alas and alack, Stretched out on the floor, with his poor broken back. They tenderly raised him, to Nurse’s instruction, Onto a stretcher of proper construction. And then the jaw bandage—it really was funny The patient looked just like a big Easter bunny. And poor drowned Sadoway, gasping for breath, Saved by resuscitation from horrible death. The exam had been scheduled—the examiner obtained And for those who succeeded, a certificate gained. S o now, friends and patients, all joking aside We know our “First Aid Rules” by which we’ll abide. E. SNOW, Class F. 66 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL By changing the constitution of the Students’ Union, the Normal School Local of the A.T.A. was organized with the same executive personnel as that of the Students’ Union, so far as was necessary. The Students’ Executive became the official body for our local. In accordance with the A.T.A. constitution the Students’ Union paid fees for twenty-five students, who became provisional members of the A.T.A. Through our delegates to the Annual Meeting of the A.T.A. at Calgary, efforts were made to change the set-up of our local so that by paying a fee equal to the one paid this year, ALL members of the Students’ Union may become provisional members of the A.T.A. David Clark and Lloyd Cook presented this suggestion to the meeting. Such an arrangement would mean a much closer contact on the part of prospective teachers with educational happenings in the province. Through our local of the A.T.A. we were informed of its activities. As Normal Students, it is our duty to become familiar with the organization, rules and functions of the A.T.A., and to take an active part in its operation. This was impressed upon us by members of the Central Executive (Mr. Baker, Mr. Barnett and others) who spoke at meetings of our local. These speakers also did much to clarify for us our duties in the A.T.A. as teachers. !94f 1 Ssit Mm ' f® WSL, I fifiy ' Jm 0 mw mmw 1 m LMIL Jfc - w • vk | 1 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL TH E SPORTS PROGRfldl In times like these it becomes necessary to retrench in all our activities, whether business, social, or sports. The Sports program in our school had to be adjusted this year tO ' meet a new set of conditions, characterized by greatly restricted facilities, a considerable reduction in available time for athletics, and a shifting student personnel. At the same time, there was a brighter side to the picture in the substantial increase in funds available for athletics. A strong intramural program requires a full supply of quality equipment, and we have this year been able to add substantially to our supply. Our pur¬ chases included rugby footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, volleyballs, baseball gloves, bats, track shoes and badminton racquets, as well as more perishable equipment. There can be no doubt that the intramural league in any sport is the real “Major League” with respect to its educational values, because of the lar¬ ger number who participate. This does not mean, however, that school teams are unimportant, or that inter-school competition should be permanently aban¬ doned. Both school teams and intramural teams have a real part to play in the life of a school, and their functions are complementary, not opposed. It is to be hoped that in normal times inter-school competition will be resumed. The “Ham and Egg” basketball league proved very popular with no less than twenty girls’ teams and five boys’ teams taking part. Everyone who wished to play was given an opportunity to do so. Each team played at least three games, and the regular schedule was followed by playoffs to de¬ termine the school champions. Miller’s Minorcas from Class D won the girls’ section, and McIntosh’s Grunters from Class A won the men’s section. No small part of the success of this league must be credited to those ‘minor League’ players who piloted their charges, if not to victory in all cases, at least to a better understanding of the fundamentals of the game. Their work is evidence of the valuable contribution that members of school teams may make to the whole sports program in a school. In volleyball a knockout tournament was held, in which a winner in each class was first determined. These winners competed for the intramural championships. Class B boys and Class C girls were successful in their respective divisions. At the date of writing, no further intramural competitions have been completed, but we plan to have a softball league for both boys and girls, a baseball league for boys, and some form of intramural track competition for both. In addition to the intramural league, Club activities such as badminton, tumbling and boxing, and school teams in basketball and track athletics have contributed in no small measure toward making this year an enjoyable and profitable one for many students in the school. Any article on the sports program would be incomplete without some recognition of the chief characteristics which marked the play of all who took part namely, good sportsmanship and a great capacity for enjoying the game while playing your hardest. On many occasions I went home feeling like a man who has just been paid a big dividend, because I had seen some student take a particularly hard bump or an adverse decision without complaint and with¬ out loss of temper. Keep up the good work, and pass it along. J. B. Kirkpatrick. AURORA, 1941-42 69 Left F.; Z. Sadoway, F.; Mr. Kirkpatrick. (Back) J. owsky, G.; W. Hansen, C.; A. Card, G. BOYS ' BflSKGTBALL Our boys’ basketball team enjoyed a highly successful season. In spite of a late start, due to lack of a gymnasium, Kirk soon had the team organized and raring to play. The chief assets of this year’s squad were co-operation, team spirit, fight, and considerable skill in ball handling and shooting. Its chief liabilities were lack of sufficient practice time and consequent lack of condition. That the assets considerably outweighed the liabilities is shown by the following record. Twenty games were played, of which E.N.S. won 15 and lost 5. The team scored 778 points for an average of 39 points per game against 681, or an average of 34, for all opposing teams. This spring the school entered our team in the Alberta Intermediate Basketball League. We became the Northern Intermediate Champions by defeating the L.D.S. in a very close two out of three series. This gave us the right to play Cardston, the Southern Champions, in the Intermediate finals. Our team won the first game 43-42, but Cardston took the next game 42-31, and with it the championship. In both games a fine brand of basketball and good sportsmanship was displayed by both teams. PEN SKETCH OF THE TEAM Bill Hansen—Captain and Centre.

GIRLS ' BflSK€TBRLL Another score! Marion Irwin, our snappy centre, is on tonight. The capacity crowd of three or four shout to the top of their voices. In spite of this lack of support our team always came out fighting. Marguerite Miller kept up . her speedy playing along with Violet Kingsep, Victoria Israelson, Patricia McCready and Violet Hosford as team mates on the forward line. Our steadfast guard line, Myra Wroblowsky, Eva Turner, Nadia Sluzar, and Thelma Thompson held off the brunt of the attack by the opposing team, right up to the finish of every game. Our two tall centres, Marion Irwin and Gretta Hanna, displayed wonderful ability in keeping the team together and helped them in many closely con¬ tested finishes. Pearl Hurlburt and Nan Cameron also showed great aptitude in basketball. These players, at first, were not all skilled in the art of basketball, but they learned it so rapidly that they merited the honor of representing old E.N.S. in many interesting games. The girls made excellent progress during the year, under the able coaching of our Physical Instructor, Mr. Kirkpatrick, who was assisted by Bill Hansen and Aaron Card. The team had a profitable year, playing a total of eleven games. They didn’t win them all, but they were always in there fighting and, with a little more luck and finish around the basket, might have won many more games than they did.

BOYS ' HOCK6Y KEfim The E.N.S. hockey schedule was rather disrupted this year, due to lack of home ice as well as to the changing of players in mid-season. For the first time in some years, the school entered a team in a regular league. The league consisted of four clubs, Concordia, Alberta and St. Stephen’s Colleges, and the Edmonton Normal School. The green and white boys met Concordia in two exhibition games and four league games. Although we never reached the top end of the score in these games the matches were closely fought all the way. The two games that come back to the memory of all E.N.S. hockey fans were those played against Alberta College. In the first game Coach Haverstock shook up the regular line-up slightly by putting Jim Soneff in goal. As a result of sensational goalkeeping by Soneff and a lone tally by McBain the E.N.S. team captured their first victory of the season. Normal lost the second game by a count of 4 to 2, but the spectators felt that this score hardly indicated the play. This game was a rugged contest, featured by the stiff body checks handed out by Lloyd Cook and Leo Rogers, and the back- checking of Meen, Broemeling and Tkachuk. Haiduk, Baird, Harding, Ch ernochan, Chomik, Hodgson, Smart, Thorburn and Dubetz are others that come to mind whenever E.N.S. hockey of 1941-42 is mentioned. All the boys wish to express their appreciation to Coach Haverstock for his interest in and capable coaching of the team, and their hope that he may be back with his old time enthusiasm next year. 74 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL th€ BflDmimon club Fun! Interest! Excitement! That was badminton as played at E.N.S. during the season of ’41-’42. Approximately forty energetic members flocked to the gymnasium at two o’clock every Saturday afternoon. There they stayed until five, playing, watching interesting matches when it was their turn to sit out, and consuming amazing quantities of the tea and biscuits which the social committee provided. We are unanimous in our opinion that the Badminton Club offered the best dime’s worth of entertainment to be found anywhere. One could watch the fledglings blossom forth under the coaching of Dr. Lord, Mr. Kirkpatrick, and a few of the more experienced players. There was no question of North-South migration of birds. They flew East, West, and into the balconies. Enjoyment of the game increased with increasing skill, and by the end of the year there were some really good matches. To mark the close of our season, a handicap tournament was held on April 25, with competitions in Ladies’ Singles, Men’s Singles, and open Doubles. The doubles competition was divided into A and B sections. Dorothy McKay and Jack Thorburn proved the best in the singles, while Elaine Snow and Kirk won the A doubles, and Beth Killam and Tony Korble won the B doubles. Suitable prizes were given to the winners in each section. The club members extend their thanks to Dr. Lord and Kirk for making the club possible, and for their assistance to the players. They also wish to express their sincere appreciation of the work done by the executive. Executive members who contributed greatly to the success of the club included Russel Beairsto, Muriel Shortreed, Gladys McLennan, and Dorothy McKay. AURORA, 1941-42 75 THE TRACK AIAD FIELD CLUB The Track and Field Club has neven been an organization with an executive, a constant membership, or regular meetings. It has, however, been one of the most active clubs in the school, and has been in operation both last fall and this spring. Last fall the main interest centred in girls’ events, as there was a dual meet held with the University girls. Mr. Kirk¬ patrick, with Bill Hansen and Aaron Card assisting, coached our team. The girls did very well, gaining places in every event, but the great individual performance of Varsity’s star, Kay Lind, was sufficient to win the meet. Marion Sannes in the sprints, Nan Cameron and Shirley Hardy in the broad jump, Marion Irwin in the high jump, Olga Bodnar and Eileen Tandberg in the softball throw, and Barbara Sherwin and Beatrice Baptist in the discus and javelin throws, were our point getters. On May 8th of this term a dual meet with Scona High has been scheduled, with both boys’ and girls’ events. Quite a number have been training faithfully since Easter for this event, and the Club feels confident that those of its members who are chosen to represent the school in this meet will do well. Win or lose, they will have gained a lot of valuable experience and training. THE TUmBLinG CLUB Through the able assistance of Mr. Kirkpatrick and Mr. Pritchard the members of the Tumbling Club reduced the number of bruises, breaks, and lacerations which they might otherwise have had. As was the case with every student group in the school this year, our membership was never quite the same from month to month. Active members of the Club included Nan Cameron, Myra Wroblowsky, Lurline Omness, Gladys McLennan, Marguerite Miller, Eileen Tandberg and Violet Kingsep among the girls, and Hansen, Card, Blackmore, Thorburn, Bahry, Harding, Korble, Chorny, Davis and Schulha among the boys. The purpose of the club was to teach individual and group tumbling activities, box horse and springboard work, and balancing and pyramid building, to those in the schbol who seemed to have a special aptitude for and interest in that sort of work. More advanced work was given to this small group than could be taught to a large class. In spite of the irregularity of our practise times and the changing membership, we enjoyed our sessions. The loss of a little skin here and there, and the acquiring of the occasional bluish, yellow, purple patches on the epidermis was a small price to pay for the fun we had and the experience we gained. 76 EDMONTON NORMAL SCHOOL TH€ BOXinG CLUB The boxing Club was organized near the end of January. While the membership was never large, enthusiasm was high amongst those who attended. There were from eight to twelve boys who missed scarcely a single meeting of the beak buster’s union. The purpose of the club was to teach the boys something of a skill which is both in¬ teresting and useful. Competition was carried on in the friendliest spirit of “give and take”, though all the boys realized the practical nature of the Biblical admonition that “It is more blessed to give than to receive”. Classes were usually held at 8:15 A.E. (awful early) Saturday mornings. Stifle those Friday night party yawns, boys, and do your warm up exercises. These were usually followed by a few more strenuous toughening exercises with medicine balk or skipping ropes. Mr. Kirkpatrick then demonstrated some particular skills of the game, such as the straight left, ducking, or some point on footwork. These were practised by the group, working in pairs. Several such lessons emphasizing the skills, were given before the gloves were donned for actual matches. Many of the boys’ faces registered quite a shocked expression when they first walked into a glove. The strangeness soon wore off, and in many of the bouts there was a good measure of skill as well as fact action. The boys thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and they learned much that will be of use to them. It took will power to get up after those Friday nights, but it was worth it. TH6 BOnSPI€L “Right there now—In turn; Draw weight. That’s right. Let her alone. Now SWEEP, you curlers, SWEEP.” In between the crashes, as some muscular and enthusiastic but inexperienced curler put one right through the house, snatches of skip’s jargon such as this might be heard at the Granite Curling Rink any time between nine o’clock and three on February 21st. The occa¬ sion? Didn’t you know? It’s the greatest curling event in Canada except the Macdonald Brier—the E.N.S. mixed honspiel, and we do mean mixed. A mixture of stout lads and fair lasses, a mixture of good shots and ghastly shots, a mixture of experience and raw enthusiasm. There was good ice, good fun, and good organization which provided everybody with a chance to take part in the ’Spiel. The whole thing added up to one of the most enjoyable days of the year, and all the curlers wish to extend their thanks to Dr. Lord for so kindly arranging for the use of brooms and rocks, and for instructing the uninitiated in their first attempt at curling. Jim Menzies, our genial sports representative, is. also to be commended on the manner in which he helped organize the day’s sport. The results would show that Jim is better as an organizer than as There were plenty of laughs during the day. Enough rocks were thrown to build Boulder Dam, and enough sweeping was done to clean all the houses in Edmonton, and nobody thought it was work until the next day. Skip Ken McConkey curled nicely, and with strong support from his rink Bawden (lead), Wiles (second), and Meen (third), managed to edge out Lloyd Cook for the silverware (defense stamps). Cook, with the support of Hayes, Ronaghan, and Falconer, gave the winners a real run for their honors. When these two skips meet in the Macdonald Brier ten years from now the battle will be resumed. pvH rruri [ JL wml Kj III 1 ■Mf, ' n m M] ly 4 i m K f pgp ' ' » ’ mSF mmmlkik I -, h ■Or B Wmk MR IP IgS • .

The Aurora of 1941-1942 once again owes its success in large measure to an army of young ladies. Early last fall eighteen bright, energetic girls were chosen from the various classes to contact the business firms in the city. Advertisements defray a major portion of the expense in publishing a Year Book, and we needed plenty of advertisements. The prospect of success was obvious at the first meeting. How could any business man refuse such attractive advertising agents? We decided on our goal, and paired the young ladies. A prize was offered to the winning team, and the race was on. Whether it was the V for Victory, the sales talk, the personality, or just plain hard work we cannot say, but day by day the list of advertisers grew. With many business men feeling the pinch of the war effort we lost quite a number of patrons who had advertised in previous years, but the girls were not discouraged. They went into the business highways and byways and brought in new advertisers to replace the losses. After a few short weeks our advertising total matched the all time high of last year’s edition. The team of Nadine Miller and Shirley Kerr brought in the highest total of advertising, but several other teams were only a little behind. A theatre party was arranged to conclude the 1941-42 Aurora Victory Drive, and, appropriately enough, the title of the show we saw was “The Feminine Touch”. To this galaxy of super-sales girls we would say “Bravo! and thank you all.” Hazel Bratrud and Eileen Tandberg; Elsie Kowalchuk and Anne Greff; Nadine Miller and Shirley Kerr; Jean Chisholm and Margaret Cameron; Mildred Larsen and Marguerite Miller; Therese Dandurand and Margaret Allen; Jean Thoroughman and Margaret Mulloy; Elaine Snow and Betty Poaps; Irene Wallsten and Vera Revega.

But they all hoil down to one basic fact—that IT PAYS TO COOK WITH GAS. It pays in improved quality of foods served—in reduced waste through over-heating or under-heating—in lower cost per meal for her family. GAS—the first choice cooking fuel, has always had inherent superiorities. Today, with modern equipment vastly im¬ proved through important research, these advantages are even more pronounced.
